God's Earth. At creation, God gave humans plants and fruit for food (Gen.1.29). It was not originally intended that humans would eat animals. Please download our PDF.

The CVAUK was launched September 2004. The Veg4Lent team realised that the time has come to expand the aims and endeavours of  Christian-vegetarian advocacy beyond the limits of the Lenten period.

What a witness it would be to the birth of the Prince of Peace if all Christians were to desist from colluding in the slaughter of millions of fellow sentient creatures. It does not seem likely, alas, for even such a small, yet significant, gesture on behalf of animals - as Christians are still largely unaware of many of their own traditions and teachings.
